Hello everyone,

I have a Galaxy S5 Active - SM-G870F with Android version 5 and I want to root my device, however on chainfire`s site I find auto root only for 4.4.2 version

My questions are:

Will it be ok to root my device v5 with auto root zip for version 4.4.2?
Other way around would be to use G900F (standart galaxy s5)`s model zip for rooting, will this be okay, and which option is best?

Thanks in advance for your time and attention.

Well, I took the risk and can confirm SM-G870F S5 Active with Android vesrion 5.0 with the latest stock firmware for Europe from sammobile (25 Jul 2015) can be rooted with cf-auto-root for version 4.4.2.

Thank you for this information! I rooted the sm-g870F for my friend and it worked. Do you know if there is a working recovery for our device available?

No, I have not checked this and for now I cannot help you with such info. You could try asking around the forum or search for similar threads.

How is this related to at&t phones?
danielsgl, this is not related to at&t phones but for the european s5 active - g870f model, my thread was posted elsewhere but a moderator moved it. It seems that this subforum is the only place where s5 active topics could be posted.
